Tuticorin chosen for adult literacy award

Collector R. Palaniyandi will receive the `Satyan Maitre Memorial National Literacy Award,' instituted by the Union Ministry of Human Resources Development, from Vice-President Bhairon Singh Shekawat in New Delhi on September 8.

Official sources said the district was one of the five in the country to get the award for outstanding performance in adult education under the National Literacy Mission during 2003-06.

The other districts are Kollam in Kerala, Kadappa in Andhra Pradesh, Chand-lang in Arunachal Pradesh and Hanumangarh in Rajasthan.

The award was instituted in 1996, in memory of Satyan Maitre, an educationist from West Bengal, who dedicated his life to adult education.
